With autumn in the air, we can’t help but think of small farmhouse plans that deliver major curb appeal, warmth, and an old-fashioned sense of home.

Timeless and rustic, small farmhouse plans are cozy and red hot for the fall. These homey designs show off sleek lines, contemporary open layouts, large windows, and combine country character with modern living (the best of both worlds!).

Whether you’re looking for your dream home or just excited for the season of fall, these small farmhouse plans are sure to catch your eye.
This small farmhouse plan works well for all kinds of homeowners
This 1,645-square-foot small farmhouse plan presents a versatile layout that will work well for buyers in many stages: a couple just starting out, an older buyer paring down and simplifying, or a family who wants a chic and affordable home. A board-and-batten exterior, charming front porch, and gable roofs, grant tons of curb appeal to this farm-inspired design.
Inside, the open layout invites relaxed entertaining at the kitchen island (check out these kitchen island ideas from House Beautiful). The study near the front can easily serve as a third bedroom, especially since it boasts another entrance to the hallway. The master suite includes two sinks, a big shower, separate tub, walk-in closet, and easy access to the laundry room. A bonus room upstairs can be finished now or later.

This sweet design feels larger than it actually is
This small farmhouse plan is spacious and open, making it feel larger than it actually is. With the kitchen, dining, and living room all opening to one another, friends and family can move around effortlessly. A split-bedroom design allows homeowners to enjoy the privacy of their master suite on the main level.
Upstairs, two bedrooms share a bathroom, while a loft space can be used as a game room or home office. Relax and breathe in the fresh fall air on the generous front porch.
Relax on the cool front porch
The first floor of this small farmhouse plan is both modern and cozy. The large island kitchen allows homeowners to easily cook up some yummy fall feasts. Two bedrooms reside to the right of the floor plan, while the master suite (with a sizable walk-in-closet) is located on the opposite side. The front porch makes autumn enjoyment easy.
This small farmhouse plan features plenty of thoughtful touches
This graceful small farmhouse plan offers relaxed, outdoor-focused living (perfect for fall) and plenty of thoughtful touches. Vaulted ceilings in the great room, country kitchen, and master bedroom add a dimension of extra space.
Relax in the master suite's tub, where a bay window gives a lovely view of the backyard. You'll also find two sinks, a separate shower, a walk-in closet, and French doors to the rear porch in the master suite. Don't miss the spacious laundry/mudroom, the kitchen's desk, and space for a freezer in the two-car garage (for mudroom ideas, check out these tips from This Old House).
Enjoy this open and airy small farmhouse plan
This handsome plan is a quaint farmhouse design that features a small footprint and an efficient use of space. Large windows provide tons of natural light, while 19-foot ceilings in the living room open to an upstairs loft (accessible by a ladder) – making the space open and airy. The island kitchen conveniently opens to the living room for an uncomplicated flow between spaces.
A bedroom on the main level features a walk-in closet and bathroom (with a spacious wet room). Upstairs, a loft adds more living space and could work great as an extra bedroom, home office, or playroom. Unwind on the covered rear porch after a long day – you may never leave!
Make the most of your square footage with this small farmhouse plan

Triple windows are fashionable additions to the breakfast area and master bedroom, and a bay window adds a special touch to the garage. The foyer opens to the great room and dining room for effortless gatherings. A full-size bath is strategically located for easy accessibility from any part of the home. The master suite is a haven, complete with a spacious walk-in closet, dual lavatories, a garden tub, and a large shower.
This modern farmhouse plan is ideal for a narrow lot
This three-bedroom small farmhouse plan is great for a narrow lot, while offering some of the extras usually reserved for wider lots (like a wraparound porch, and a two-car garage). A striking vaulted ceiling adds volume and character to the great room.
The kitchen is designed for efficiency and offers access to the side porch and rear deck for outdoor dining options. The master bedroom sits behind the two-car garage to shield it from noise. Two bedrooms, a full bath, and a bonus room reside upstairs.
